LIH Spotlight: Mail-Order Christmas Baby

This week I’m shining the spotlight on
Mail-Order Christmas Baby, a November release from
Love Inspired Historical author Sherri Shackelford.

Learn more about the story below, and then scroll
down to enter the giveaway for a print copy.

The Rancher’s Special Delivery 

The “package” is addressed to him, but rancher Sterling Blackwell certainly didn’t order a baby! More scandalous still, he and the town’s pretty teacher are named as parents. With gossip running wild, only a marriage of convenience can protect little Gracie and their reputations until her real family is found.

Heather O’Connor is content to be the spinster schoolmarm of Valentine, Montana…until Gracie’s arrival stirs her heart. She can’t keep the adorable child without Sterling’s help, though she promises not to interfere with his life. But staying aloof from her handsome husband isn’t easy with a tiny matchmaker in tow. A mistake brought them together, but love might just make them a family by Christmas…

 Heartbreak, Healing and Hope

The past few weeks have brought one heartbreaking situation after another: devastating hurricanes, a massive earthquake in Mexico and the tragic shooting in Las Vegas. After my devotions this morning, I popped on Facebook and read about the fires raging in Santa Rosa, California that have forced three of my literary agency’s staff members to evacuate.

Heartbreaking news such as this is hard to hear. I’ve prayed about the situations repeatedly, many times through a sheen of tears. But I’m not without hope. We who have accepted the Lord as our Savior have the assurance that He’s there with and for us in good times and bad.

I shared a prayer request with a dear friend of mine this past week. She referred me to a Bible verse she finds helpful in uncertain times. I was comforted not only by the Scripture passage, but also by my friend’s kindness in directing me to the uplifting words.
